Country Report
The article focuses on the failure of Franco-Egyptian ceasefire plan for Gaza and the military campaign in Israel. The ceasefire in the region has lasted only for three hours due to limited willingness of Israeli army to stop the war. Instead, the armed forces held an initial air strike in Hamas security compounds and weapons depots in Gaza City, Khan Younis and Rafah. It anticipates the impact of the war on the popularity of Hamas and Labour Party, headed by Defence Minister Ehud Barak.
